Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall for its 2012 E-Class Coupe due to a potential fault with its airbag. The recall will effect E350 and E550 coupe models manufactured from April 2nd, 2012 to June 29th, 2012.
In total, 499 vehicles in the US are affected by the recall, which is due to an improper stitching of the window curtain airbag on the passenger side. The improper stitching can cause the airbag to not deploy as intended. Essentially the airbag could deflate more quickly than intended, reducing the protection it offers in the situation of an accident.
Owners of the affected E-Class coupes will be notified by the German automaker soon. They will be able to take their vehicles to a local dealership and have the faulty airbag replaced for free.
